Surprise I made a dress and I’m even blogging about it! When I saw the first challenge for Indie Pattern month over at The Monthly Stitch I was inclined to pass it by since I rarely wear dresses. Indie Pattern Month looks so fun though and I did have some dress patterns in the stash… Continue reading Indie Pattern Month: A Colfax dress and a blog post in the same week!
***Disclaimer – this post contains affiliate links*** Not long after my first success with making a woven sleeved top for myself, I saw an Itch to Stitch call for pattern testers for a button-up top or dress pattern.

I didn’t really doubt that I could make jeans, but I certainly didn’t expect… Continue reading Sewing level up: Ginger Jeans
